"A painting by Egyptologist Howard Carter is to be sold after being discovered at a charity antiques valuation event in Mid Wales. The gouache by Carter (1874-1939), who discovered the tomb of Tutankhamun in the Valley of the Kings on November 4, 1922, is of Queen Senseneb from Derel Bahari and is valued at up to £3,000. Signed by Carter and dated 1897, the painting was discovered by Halls Fine Art's William Lacey in Barmouth during a valuation event."
